Advanced Career Curricula
Preparing students for success in STEM fields

Post

Co-designed with state leaders, postsecondary educators, employers and master teachers to meet workforce demand in high-tech STEM fields, SREB’s Advanced Career curricula help students master readiness standards and cultivate the critical thinking, problem-solving, communication and applied academic skills employers value.

Advanced Career Courses

Each of AC’s turnkey courses offers everything schools needs to be sure they work, from fully developed lesson plans, projects, assessments, tools and technology to extensive training and support for teachers. 

  • Aerospace Engineering
  • Automated Materials Joining Technology
  • Clean Energy Technology
  • Energy and Power
  • Global Logistics & Supply Chain Management
  • Informatics
  • Innovations in Science and Technology
  • Manufacturing & Automation
  • Oil & Gas

All AC courses are taught in the context of a college-ready academic core. Advanced courses can be offered for dual credit in partnership with a two- or four-year postsecondary institution. AC students can also earn industry certifications that help them secure employment right after high school.

AC flips the switch for students who aren’t sparked by traditional teaching.

Customizable Design and Delivery

All AC teachers attend a Teacher Training Institute for each course they teach. At the TTI, teachers use AC technology tools to complete student projects and assignments. This builds teachers’ confidence delivering AC’s student-centered, project-based approach to learning.

Follow-up professional development, coaching and technical assistance services help AC teachers and schools strengthen their implementation of the AC curriculum and build schedules that support student cohorts and interdisciplinary teacher planning.

SREB also works with high schools, technology centers or community and technical colleges to deliver AC courses in stand-alone or wall-to-wall career academies.
